Resonant Spaces: Sound Art at Dartmouth
September 15-December 10, 2017

In the first-ever installation of sound art on Dartmouth's campus, organized in collaboration with Spencer Topel, assistant professor in Dartmouth's Department of Music, the Hood Museum of Art will showcase the work of emerging and established international artists with diverse aesthetic and cultural backgrounds. Seven site-specific and sound-based commissions will guide visitors across the Dartmouth campus and into the town of Hanover. Hood Downtown will feature a multimedia display introducing the exhibition and artists, as well as selected works from conceptual artist Terry Adkins (1953-2014). Artists creating new installations for the show include Bill Fontana, Christine Sun Kim, Jacob Kirkegaard, Alvin Lucier, Laura Maes, Julianne Swartz, and Jess Rowland.
